"Harriet Ann Jacobs (February 11, 1813 - March 7, 1897) was an American writer, who escaped from the horrors of slavery and became an abolitionist speaker and reformer. Jacobs' single work, 'Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl', published in 1861 under the pseudonym Linda Brent, was one of the first autobiographical narratives about the struggle for freedom by female slaves and an account of the sexual harassment and abuse they endured.This important primary source includes a new introduction by Emmy award winning writer and historian Bob Carruthers."--Publisher website
